OKJ: solo victory for Dries Van Langendonck

Tires: Vega

  • The first victory of the season arrives for Dries Van Langendonck (Forza Racing – Exprit – TM Kart) in Cremona. The reigning OKJ world champion, always in the top positions throughout the weekend and second on the starting grid, takes the reins of the final during the fourth lap and remains solidly in the lead until the checkered flag.
  • From 36th place in qualifying, Niklas Schaufler (DPK Racing – KR – IAME) completed his comeback with an excellent second place, dueling in the final laps with Filippo Sala (Ricky Flynn Motorsport – LN – TM Kart). The Austrian, despite the victory of his rival Van Langendonck, remains at the top of the championship.
  • Starting from pole position, Sala did not show the same pace as in recent days and struggled to stay in the lead in the first laps. However, the Italian achieved his second podium of the season after the one achieved at the WSK Champions Cup.
  • Only 45th in Friday's qualifying, Dean Hoogendoorn (AKM Motorsport – KR – IAME) achieved a good fourth place finish, thanks also to a 14-place comeback in the final alone. Positive fifth position for Lev Krutogolov (Borsch Racing – Tony Kart – IAME).
  • First Top 10 for rookie Noah Baglin (KR Motorsport – KR – IAME), sixth, followed in the standings by Arjen Kräling (KR Motorsport – KR – IAME), seventh. Kit Belofsky (Sodikart – Sodikart – TM Kart) drops from third to eighth, while Scott Kin Lindblom (Tony Kart Racing Team – Tony Kart – Vortex) closes stable in ninth position. Tenth Roman Kamyab (Ricky Flynn Motorsport – LN – TM Kart).
  • After a good start to the race, Rocco Coronel ranked outside the top ten, exactly in 11th place. Dull test for Christian Costoya (Parolin Motorsport – Parolin – TM Kart), 12th. Sebastian Lehtimaki Lindblom (Tony Kart Racing Team – Tony Kart – Vortex) gained 13 positions and achieved 13th place. Iacopo Martinese (KR Motorsport – KR – IAME) setback 4 laps from the end.


OKN-J: Archie Lovatt beats everyone

Tires: Vega

  • Archie Lovatt (Forza Racing – Exprit – TM Kart) celebrates his first victory in OKN-J, after a long duel and a breathtaking final sprint with Bogdan Cosma Cristofor (Forza Racing – Exprit – TM Kart). The Briton beats his Romanian teammate by just 0.028 seconds, who was subsequently penalized by 3 seconds for the front nose cone being in the incorrect position.
  • Behind the winner Lovatt is Alex Molota (Firefly Racing Team – Gillard – TM Kart), third at the finish line and promoted to second place due to Cosma Cristofor's penalty, who was instead relegated to the lowest step of the podium.
  • It's a shame for Valerio Viapiana (Team Driver Racing Kart – KR – IAME), out of the Top 3 after the pole position in qualifying and a weekend at the top of the standings. Drew Walz (Forza Racing – Exprit – TM Kart) is fifth, followed in the standings by Nujus Stasionis (Team Driver Racing Kart – KR – IAME), sixth, and by Ludovico Mazzola (Stefano Mazzola – Exprit – Vortex), seventh.
  • Eighth place for Lorenzo D'Amico (Emme Racing – EKS – Modena Engines) thanks to a comeback of 9 positions. Alexander Koustas Bronson (AKM Motorsport – KR – IAME) also moves up the rankings, from 21st to ninth. Tenth is Sebastian Frigolet (Team Driver Racing Kart – KR – IAME).
  • An accident at the start puts 15 drivers offside, including Sara Matsui (KR Motorsport – KR – IAME), Andrea Manni (Forza Racing – Exprit – TM Kart) and Michele Orlando (DR – DR – Modena Engines): the latter is overwhelmed by another competitor, however there are no - at least for now - serious consequences for the Italian driver.
